Major League Baseball players pay tribute to Albert Pujols after his 3000th hit

Pujols is the 32nd player to achieve 3,000 hits and is the ninth player to hit 600 home runs.

"Trust me I wanted to do it last night".

Ichiro Suzuki earned his 3,000th major league hit on August 7, 2016, with a triple when he was playing for the Miami Marlins.

Angels teammate Mike Trout saluted Pujols in a tweet late Friday. Every night was a pinch-hitting opportunity and that was really hard.

Before Ichiro Suzuki's move to the front office this week, he was the active leader in hits in the Major League Baseball with 3,089 in his career (not to mention the 1,278 hits he had in Japan).

Chances are Friday will go down as the most historic day of the 2018 season. Only 31 players in the MLB's long history have joined this club.

The players who are closest to reaching the 3,000 mark are Miguel Cabrera (2,666), Robinson Cano (2,409), and Jose Reyes (2,100). After Cabrera is Robinson Cano, almost 600 hits away from the mark.

Mariners manager Scott Servais' final season as a major league player was Pujols' first in 2001. He is seventh on baseball's career homers list after hitting his 600th last season. He's the second to reach that mark in an Angels uniform, joining Rod Carew, who did it in 1985. He hit.329 in his first season with 37 home runs, winning Rookie of the Year honors and finishing fourth in MVP voting.

Albert Pujols could've retired 10 years ago and been a Hall of Fame lock.

Pujols is the second player to collect his 3,000th hit in Seattle after Rafael Palmeiro's double in 2005 at Safeco Field.

After singling off Mariners starter Mike Leake (3-3) and coming around to score in a two-run fourth inning, Ohtani doubled to deep left in his next at-bat in the fifth to score Justin Upton and advance Albert Pujols to third. Two-way Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani's arrival as the Angels' primary DH has put Pujols in the field, where he remains a capable defender.
